Can someone give an example of a webpage that is being mirrored?

I had a picture attached on my first post of this thread.

From this post ( it looks like the site below may cause the problem:

Can anyone confirm that the above site mirrors?

Confirmed, it mirrors badly

The site is a mess on the Athlon 64 X2 computer with the xorg radeon driver. It is also mirrored with SeaMonkey 2. It displays correctly on the laptop with the Intel driver. On Opera, both systems, it's fine.

Here is a summary of events as relates to my box:

-- used nvidia driver before

-- changed to kernel 2.6.30

-- could not install nvidia driver

-- switched to nv driver

-- firefox started to mirror on certain websites

-- changed to slackware-13 kernel-

-- firefox still mirrors

-- checked firefox in slackware, found OK

-- found slackware uses vesa driver

-- used vesa driver in my box and firefox does not mirror

-- checked driver in Absolute Linux-13.?, it is nv

-- Firefox does not mirror in Abs.Lin-13 with nv driver

-- used Abs.Lin xorg.conf in my box with nv driver and Firefox mirrors.   

-- used Abs.Lin xorg.conf in slackware and Firefox does not mirror with nv

-- installed new nvidia driver for kernel 2.6.30 compliments of Uelsk

-- Firefox does not mirror

BTW the version of firefox does not seem to matter. I am using 3.5.5 now
and I think the problem was with the 2 versions as well.

Hope this all will make sense to somebody and help solve the problem.

For what it is worth, I've been able to make the mirroring happen on my laptop as well.  I usually use the proprietary driver for the nvidea GO 7300, but I messed around with a couple of different setting until I finally got to mirror for me.

What finally worked was a combination of the nv driver and firefox 3.5.5.

That's it, don't really have a solution other that switching back to the proprietary driver or maybe vesa or fbdev.
